How to make a Hauntingly Cute Decoration with Dew Drops

Happy haunting Saturday to you!  Now is the time to get started on Halloween decoration or you could modify the colors and make a cute fall themed shabby bird house for indoor decoration!
Here are the ingredients I used:
  • Tiny wooden birdhouse
  • Popsicle stick
  • Sparkling Acrylic Paint – Prima Art Alchemy Sparks in Raven Black and Iris Potion
  • Elmer’s School Glue
  • Clock from Chipboard
  • Purple Daisy type flower
  • Dew Drops in metallic silver and purple
How to Make:
  • Get your small bird house (I think these cost about $1.00 at a large hobby store)

 

  • Paint with your base color, until evenly covered.  I used two coats of Raven Black Spark from Prima, which I let dry between coats.

 

  • We’re going to pull out an old home made crackle technique to make the roof shabby and worn looking.  Cover both sides of the roof with Elmer’s school glue and let dry until tacky to the touch.
  • Paint lightly with your second color, shown here in Iris Potion over the not quite dry glue.  You see in the photo below the cracking has begun, but the glue is still wet.  Let dry completely and admire your shabby roof.
  • While the roof was drying, I painted a popsicle stick with an eggplant color and cut into two little boards to “hammer” part way over the opening.  Glue together and let dry.
  • Add four silver tiny dew drops to the “boards”.  These are my faux nails, in this case.
  • When the birdhouse has dried, adhere a finishing piece of paper on the bottom, or you could paint this (your choice).  Adhere the boards over the hole in the bird house.  Add any other embellishments at this time.  Let everything dry.
  • Now you’re ready to add your haunted birdhouse to your table decorations for Halloween.  These also can be made in any theme you like from cozy cottage to steam punk castle.  They make great hostess gifts for the holidays throughout the year.  Thanks for stopping by!

See you again for crafty fun, very soon!

Sparkly DIamond Candle Holder

Hello, on the blog with Robin’s Nest dew drops and a beautiful candle holder!  I love using dew drops for all kinds of home decor projects.

Supplies used –
candle
Art Glitter Glue
This project looks like it takes a long time to finish but in reality, I was probably about 1/2 an hour. It took the longest time to line up the red dew drops along the bottom and then from there adding the rest of the colors went pretty fast.
To start with, I lined up about 5 of the red dew drops then added a few of the orange ones this helped with keeping them straight. I also made sure to set the candle down on the table for adjustment.
I laid out my dew drops in rainbow colors and then started to glue then in place, completely covering the candle.

EASY Decor with Dew Drops and Epoxy

Hello Crafters!
I’m a bit giddy about this project, it was an “experiment” that actually worked. SUPER EASY, TOO!
I mentioned in my previous Robin’s Nest Design Team post of Aug 10, 2020 that I’ve been playing around with epoxy.  I wasn’t quite sure how the Dew Drops were going to behave in the thick liquid, but they performed like a Champion!
SUPPLIES: 

Dew Drops by Robin’s Nest
2 part clear epoxy medium
silicone mold
Art glitter

INSTRUCTIONS: 
1. Select a silicone mold shape.
2. Pour a nice bouquet of colors and shapes of Dew Drops into the mold. (The more, the better!)
I used green, purple, aqua, and yellow.
3. Mix epoxy medium according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Add glitter that compliments the color choices of the Dew Drops. (I used purple and gold glitter).
4. Pour the epoxy mixture into the mold. Fill the mold, completely to the top.
5. Let set overnight.
6. Remove the hardened epoxy shape from the mold, gently.  VIOLA!

So easy, yet gorgeous!  I might be going on a pouring frenzy.  I hope you’re inspired to pull out your dusty silicone molds and give it a try, too!

Thanks for stopping by the blog!
Craft on,
Becky
